Mozart's last work, the Requiem - performed in the very heart of Salzburg opposite the house of his birth. Mozart was anonymously commissioned to write a requiem in the summer of 1791, which he composed during his progressing illness in the last months of his life.
He was unable to complete the great work by the time of his death, December 5th, 1791. Although the general public at this time showed little interest in Mozart or his serious illness, Mozart spent the last months of his life musically preoccupied with his own anticipated death. His Requiem reflects the phases of fear, hope and salvation that Mozart went through before he could complete his work and died.
Mozart's former pupil Franz Xaver Süssmayr completed the Mozart Requiem relying on his master's last oral instructions and written notes.
A orchestra of Salzburger Konzertgesellschaft presents the Mozart Requiem in wonderful atmosphere at the Karlskirche in Vienna.
